Prisoner's death results in lawsuit against Primecare Medical

By Philip Gonzales | Mar 5, 2019

BECKLEY — A woman is suing Primecare Medical of West Virginia Inc., citing alleged negligence and reckless conduct in the death of a Southern Regional Jail prisoner.

Rose Reynolds, administrator of the estate of Christopher Reynolds, filed a complaint against the medical care provider in Raleigh Circuit Court, alleging that the defendant failed to provide proper care and treatment to Christopher Reynolds while he was incarcerated in or about October 2016. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 7, 2016 the plaintiff's decedent Christopher Reynolds was an inmate housed at the jail in Raleigh County when he made a medical complaint to the defendant's personnel regarding a potential clot in his leg and potential heart issues.

As a result of the defendant's acts and omissions, the decedent lost his chance to recover and expired from a treatable condition. The plaintiff holds Primecare Medical of West Virginia Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to obtain a timely venous ultrasound as requested by outside physicians, failed to timely notify the on-call physicians and failed to timely transport the decedent to a hospital for proper evaluation and treatment.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for all injuries and damages, attorney's fees, costs and such other just and proper relief. She is represented by Paul M. Stroebel of Stroebel & Johnson PLLC in Charleston.
